A Note to You From Cheryl

"Let me just say, that I would not hire anyone who I wouldn't want to study with myself. I have set the bar very, very high. Everyone who teaches at Kline Academy has my utmost respect for what they do, how they do it and how they instruct our students. Our vision is to continue to be a great Atelier with working artists / instructors highly skilled in art making. We've just reached our 13th anniversary and now we are an ARC approved academy, and we will continue to be an important part of the fine art cultural community in Los Angeles."
